Troy, MI (PRWEB) April 09, 2014
Billhighway has partnered with the Michigan Education Association (MEA), one of the largest school employee associations in the US, to transform their dues collection process. The new and improved system, used by over 100,000 members on a monthly basis, boasts increased transaction speed, accuracy and security.
As a result of legislative changes, the MEA was faced with a serious challenge. Their current billing system proved unreliable and inefficient – so the time was right for an automated platform that integrated with their existing software. Equally important was offering members more payment options, customized statements and transparency to their account information.
Billhighway delivered a cost-effective, fully automated billing system that integrates with back-office software, while providing the MEA with a steady revenue stream. The system was implemented within 60 days, and reduced payment processing time from 216 hours per month, to less than one hour. According to Patricia Brand, MEA Finance Director, “Billhighway saved us time and valuable resources so we can focus more on student education and ensuring the working environments of members are of the highest quality.”
Due to their new automated solution, data is now real-time, centralized and end of month reports can be generated with a few clicks of the mouse. “The MEA has complete visibility to their balance sheet which accurately reflects their financial position at all times,” shares Tracy-Ann Palmer, Billhighway’s Chief Growth Officer. “We are proud to positively impact an organization dedicated to advancing public education.”
